Week ahead: Two chances to see Big K.R.I.T. and Freddie Gibbs, find those Record Store Day leftovers

- If you go to one concert this week, make it: The stellar combo of up-and-coming rappers Big K.R.I.T. and Freddie Gibbs . We love K.R.I.T.’s new mixtape and are pretty sure we’ll love Gibbs’s upcoming album on Young Jeezy’s label. You can catch the show at U Street Music Hall on Sunday, or for the more adventurous, at Jaxx on Saturday.

- If you listen to one new album this week, make it: Something you bought at Record Store Day this weekend. Maybe “Live at the Old Waldorf,” that double-live Television album from the 1978 heyday?

- And if you stay up late to watch one act on television, make it: The Strokes on “Conan” Wednesday night. Because most everything else is reruns this week.
